My Ford 601 WorkMaster

Postby Trent M » Wed Jun 10, 2015 10:37 pm

I thought I'd share a pic of my Ford 601 WorkMaster.

Image

That's the boy bush hogging out at the farm a few weeks ago. There is now corn planted there, some left over RR seed given to me by a friend of the family. It should make for a great deer hunting spot this fall!

I bought this tractor about a year ago. I really like it. It starts and runs great, will work all day, and be ready again tomorrow. We have mowed, disked, done blade work, spread seed, lime, and fert with a cone spreader, and dug post holes. I still love my Cubs of course, but I've become very fond of this workhorse also!

I forgot to add that my dad, myself, and my son took turns plowing this spot with the 49 Cub. I think that was the most fun! See, I still love my Cubs too!!

I just sold one of these a couple months ago for my grandfather. Forgot to send the override pto with it though. Sure is a nice machine for basic farm work

I wish I had a dollar for every hour of work those old Fords have done over the years....

I have a lot of fords and use them all the time and the 601 is one of my best little tractors. It can run all day a sip the gas unlike some of the bigger fords. I also keep a good batch of cubs for some planting and cultivation work. Good luck with the new tractor.

Kirk - I believe I have seen your username on another forum while I was searching for something about my Ford. I was thinking it was probably you!

I am partial to Fords too. Was half way looking for an NAA or 600 series with a loader when I stumbled into a Cub with a 1000 loader and fast hitch. So no Ford for me.....

I just picked up another 631 workmaster from one of the board members here. Ran when parked in a barn about ten yrs ago. Worked on it a few days and it runs and drives now but still need a lot of work. My wife said your selling this one right? I said I think I'll keep it and sell one of my 8n's. I think the 601 should have been call workhorse instead of workmaster.

At least it's almost the right color. :D I for years liked the looks of the 9/2/8N's especially the skinny big front tired ones. A couple years ago was watching a local parade and one came by and thought to myself "that thing looks like a riding lawnmower" when surrounded by any other normal sized tractors. I have taken a liking to the 600 series now since they are mainly red. Of course a '63 2000 or 3000 would go nice with my '63 Cub lowboy. :D
